Pet-Friendly Istria: Parks and Apartment
Abby at the Adriatic Sea

I had this idea that Croatia wouldn't be very pet-friendly but, in fact, it turned out to be one of the most dog-friendly countries we've visited in Europe.  Nearly every household has one or two dogs, dogs are allowed most places (even in some malls), and there are tons of great pet-friendly parks around Croatia.  Here's a quick primer to the dog-friendly Istrian peninsula:

Dogs/Pets Entering Croatia

Croatia is not part of the EU but Croatia follows the European Union/UK Pet Passport scheme.  If you have an EU pet passport, you won't have any trouble entering Croatia.  The Croatian immigration folks didn't even look at their pet passports when we crossed over!

The beautiful waterfalls and lakes of Plitvice National Park, Croatia's biggest attraction, is also dog-friendly!  Dogs are allowed on leash throughout the amazing and expansive park though please note that many of the trails are quite narrow so keep a close eye on the dogs, especially during high tourist season when the park will be packed with people.

Pula Amphitheatre

Istria's most famous attraction, the huge and well-preserved Roman amphitheatre at Pula, is also dog-friendly!  Dogs are allowed inside the amphitheatre and outside and it's a great place to get pictures of your dog at a Roman ruin.  Dogs are not allowed inside the museum area below the amphitheatre.

 Park near Adriatic Sea, Pula

Right near the Adriatic Sea in Pula, there is a five mile long wooded park with beautiful views onto the ocean.  It's a great place to walk dogs and we often saw joggers enjoying themselves, as well.  In the summer, it would be a wonderful place to let the dogs enjoy the beach.

Not too many hotels accept pets in their location, therefore people who have pets and want to travel with them are discouraged due to these harsh practices. But, if they are patience enough, they will find an accommodation which accepts them as well. For instance, the Los Angeles temporary housing arrangements have great living conditions and maybe pets are accepted.

If you have a dog you have to go every day outside with him. It is esier to go outside for people who live in a house on the ground. A homeowner can nicely decorate his backyard with the best and unique garden decor and leave the dog free to run there, while he reads a book.

It is very difficult to find pet-friendly apartments. Having a dog at home may be quite difficult because he tends to destroy everything around him, he will chew your furniture and shoes, he will pee on your shoes and carpet and so on. Therefore, some things should be out of his reach. A quality lock like these great Keyless Access Locks will guarantee you that your pet won't have access to a certain room or to your pantry.

Most hotel rooms have steam showers instead of bathtubs, which is not so good if you have pets and you want to make them a bath or you have children who don't stand to make a shower. Therefore, if you still have showers, you should replace them with quality steam showers to attract the adults and the children as well to do a bath.

A hotel should also offer impeccable services to its clients. And if a certain hotel offers pet-friendly suites or rooms, they should collaborate with a quality termite pest control service. Proving superior services to your clientele is the best way to do honest business.
